Peace Ambassador Gatwech Koak Nyuon Condemns the death of Journalist in Juba.
August 21, 2015(Nyamilepedia)—-The death of Peter Julius Moi in Juba is a signal to any individual beings that the Country and its citizens are under life threatening condition. Journalists and Activists have been killed with no proper investigation carried out by the Government.
This alone encourages the enemies of peace to purposely kill journalists. To kill journalists has no different from hurting or blinding your own eyes. Journalists are the voice of voiceless. We cannot kill or even threat them. If we kill them, it will be more than a disaster for citizens to recover from lost.
I strongly condemned the death of journalist in Juba and I strongly urge the Government of South Sudan to thoroughly investigate the case so that the killers are brought to Court. Government is an entity who must strategically plan for the betterment of her citizens at every second.
More journalists have been killed and there had been no single tangible report produced related to who killed them. This time South Sudan is more than three years old, it has full capacity to investigate the death of an individual and curb crimes.
Both Polices and other security departments can easily reveal the killer if they are serous to know who killed Peter Julius…
Where is South Sudan heading please?
We want peace. Peace means that there must be no gun pointing at any citizens at any time. There must be no targeting killing because of person’s profession. Citizens must stay hopefully and fearlessly. They must stay free. This is how we can kick out the insecurity out of our Country.
Last but not least, I appreciate all Media houses, The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) and the Union of Journalists in South Sudan for continuing to work for change although the guns have been pointed on them every day.
Finally, I extend my condolence message to the family, relatives, colleagues and friends of deceased.
In Media we believe!
